About a month ago over a Saturday latte, my friend Anna casually asked me if I might have some party ideas for an upcoming event to celebrate her boys 2nd and 4th birthdays. We decided to do a Kid’s Pirate Party theme, since their favorite cartoon characters live in Neverland. It took me all of 5 minutes to volunteer to design a full-on, bright and colorful party, featuring parrots, palm trees and pirate ships. After a month of planning, designing and making, this is the pirate party that evolved. It was a hit! Here are the details for the decorations and food that Anna, a few helping hands and I prepared: PALM TREE TUTORIAL in this post
